Slated to open in 2018, Ascott Taiyuan sits squarely in Longcheng's new district, a fast developing area said to be the upcoming Central Business District of Taiyuan. Manicured trees line Longcheng Street where the residence is located, a street named after the city's nickname of "Dragon City". The street name is an honour given to Taiyuan for its lengthy history as the provisional capital of many past Chinese dynasties.
Taiyuan is an ancient city with more than 2500 years of urban history, dating back from 497 BC. Its strategic location and rich history make Taiyuan one of the economic, political, military, and cultural centers of Northern China.
Now that it has modernized, only a few buildings have stood the test of time. One of which is the Shaanxi Museum in downtown Taiyuan, one of the largest museums in China. The remnants of old Taiyuan can also be found a short 10-minute walk from Ascott Taiyuan, close to Wuyi Road.
The majestic twin towers of the iconic Yongzuo Temple stand southwest of the city, which structures are featured in the city's emblem. The Chongshan Monastery, Longtan Park and Yingze Park, are also situated in the city centre, and are worth a visit.
Promising a luxurious experience for the global traveller, Ascott Taiyuan will be fitted with an array of serviced apartments. Choose between modernly decorated boutique hotel rooms and serviced apartments designed for international executives and their families.
The serviced residence is located within a close proximity to the Shanxi Sports Centre, shopping malls and several attractions such as Shanxi Theatre and Longcheng Park. It is a mere 10-minute drive from both the Taiyuan International Airport and the new high-speed railway station that connects Taiyuan to Beijing.
